Adult Education

General Information

GENERAL INFORMATION

The Center for Urban and Regional Excellence (CURE) at Indiana University Northwest offers a leading Adult Education program that promotes professional development, life-long learning and personal enrichment for residents throughout Northwest Indiana.  Our non-credit programs are strategically focused to prepare individuals for productive employment, help professionals advance their careers, provide employees with work skills development, and assist companies that want to invest in their employees through customized work-related training and certification programs.  In order to accommodate the busy schedules of professionals and individuals, our Adult Education program offers evening and weekend classes on the campus of Indiana University Northwest plus an extensive variety of impactful online courses. 

Registration Information

All registrations are done on line at www.iun.edu/adultedu.  The preferred way to pay is with a credit or debit card.  You can pay with a personal check if your fees are $250 or less.  A cashier’s check or money order is needed if the fees are over $250.  However, payment by check must be sent to a lockbox at least 14 days before the class begins.  This allows time for mail delivery and to be counted in the minimum enrollment count for the class.  If you miss the target date, please call (219) 980-6978new.

No registrations can be made in the office.

After you enroll online, a confirmation page will appear, so be prepared to print it.  If you enrolled with a credit card, your name will be placed on the class list immediately.  If you are sending a check, make two copies of your confirmation page.  Send one copy with your check to the address which will be on the confirmation page.  Keep the other copy for your records.  When the check is received at the lock box, your name will be placed on the class list.  Again, payment by check must be sent to a lockbox at least 14 days before the class begins. If you miss the target date, please call (219) 980-6978new

POLICIES/REFUNDS

There will be a $15 processing fee plus 3% of the registration fee assessed for all student requested refunds.  Enrollments which are paid by check will be refunded in the form of a check and may take up to 30 days.  Credit and debit card charges will be reversed on the card used in the transaction.  Your parking permit must be returned before a refund is issued.

Withdrawal 48 business hours before class - refund less a $15 processing fee plus 3% of the registration fee (Exception: No Certified Nursing Assistant refunds)

Withdrawal within 48 hours of class – credit toward another class during the same semester (Exception: No Certified Nursing Assistant refunds)

Withdrawal after class meets - no refund

IUN reserves the right to cancel a course if low enrollment or other contingencies prevail.  Refund fees will not be assessed if the class is canceled by IUN.   IUN is not liable for any services or products the student contracts with the instructor.

CAMPUS PARKING PERMITS  

Information regarding parking will be provided upon receipt of your paid registration, but please note that all vehicles parked on IU Northwest property must properly display an IU Northwest parking permit.   

CONFIRMATION

When paid registrations are received student names are recorded on the class list.  When the minimum number of students is enrolled in a class, confirmation letters are sent either as an email or postal mail.  This is usually done about 5-7 days before a class is scheduled to begin.  You are encouraged to be an early bird by signing up for a class with the discount rate.  It helps our staff be more efficient and send out letters earlier.
